Does this post mean you are back? I've missed your writing! Love the blanket ....love even more that you used it in spite of what the sales lady advised! Lol :)


That is absolutely beautiful. It's projects like this that make me determined to learn how to knit someday.


It's beautiful, Martina! I know what you mean about some projects rubbing you the wrong way by the time they are done - I have the same thing. I guess it's part of the creative process! Also, Ilia is gorgeous. She looks familiar, but all your babies are so distinct.

Not sure if I'm back. I do miss this place.


Do it! It doesn't get any easier than this project.


Thank you! Ilia looks a lot like Saskia at that age.

Pretty blanket!

I wonder how it would look with a black contrast instead?

Martina Scholtens

Probably completely different . . . and amazing. I find it really difficult to imagine how the different colours will stripe up together. Part of the fun is watching it materialize before your eyes. Some ideas here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/search#pattern-link=noro-striped-scarf&view=cards


I randomly checked your blog today for the first time in a year or so, hoping there might be something new - if not I was going to re-read an old post or two. Imagine my delight to discover a handful of new posts! I'm so happy to see you back! I love your writing and am always so happy to read your articles here and on Mothers in Medicine. Hurray!

First on your blog but loved the way you put your thoughts into words.
BTW, its a pretty blanket and your babies looks so cute :)
